How To Get More Life From Your Cutters

Are your hole cutters, annular cutters, and other cutters wearing out too fast? This is a very common concern and problem among those who use cutters on a regular basis. Everyone wants to have long life out of their cutters. Longer life means more cutting, which means more work done, which means more profit. Also, the longer the life, the less you will have to purchase new cutters for the job!

Helpful Tips

Hougen Mfg. has been very kind to give out some tips to keep your cutters, magnetic drills, and such running smooth and having a longer life. Many may seem trivial, but don’t underestimate the small trivial things as they can have a very large impact!

  • #1 cause of broken or prematurely dull cutters is too slow of a feed rate. Slower feed rates will not add life to your cutter but actually reduce the cutter’s life. Use firm steady feed pressure throughout the cut.
  • Always make sure to clear chips from your cutter before starting the next hole.
  • Make sure support system for drill arbor is in place and not worn out. If using on a drill press, a support system must be used.
  • For harder materials, use the appropriate cutter material. Like premium cutters and carbide tipped or solid carbide cutters! Hougen has a very nice line of Premium Cutters and Copperhead™ Carbide Tipped Cutters.
  • Make sure mag drill is on a clean work piece and securely attached. Uneven or large build up of debris can cause drill slippage. Material must be at least 3/8″ thick. Painted material can also be troublesome if paint buildup does not allow magnet to hold securely.
  • When slug ejection becomes unreliable or tool resists cutting, resharpen or replace your cutter. For Hougen drills, you can have them sent in or purchase a sharpening machine so you can sharpen them right at home or the shop! Talk about saving money!
  • Always use coolant when drilling. For best results with Hougen cutters, use Hougen’s Slick-Stik™ or RotaMagic™ cutting lubricant.
  • For best performance always maintain your drill as instructed in your operator’s manual.
  • And as always, always observe standard and specific safety instructions.

When it eventually is time to purchase a new set of cutters, check out Hougen’s cutters as they are of very high quality. They have excellent customer support if you are in need of answers or help.

Hougen®-Ogura™ Punch-Pro Hole Punchers

Once again, Hougen has more magnificent products to offer!

You’ll punch more holes, more often in more places all in less time using a Hougen-Ogura Punch-Pro Electro-hydraulic Hole Puncher because of its lightweight and single body construction. Unlike hole punchers with separate hydraulics that require hydraulic hoses, the Punch-Pro series has unique single-body construction meaning there is only a 120V power cord to deal with.

Punch-Pro models require less punching tonnage than traditional hole punchers because of an exclusive punch and die design. Siz Punch-Pro models offer punching diameters from 1/4″ up to 15/16″ thru material thicknesses from 5/64″ up to 1/2″. Punching beats drilling.

A Punch-Pro dramatically reduces your hole-making costs over conventional drilling methods.

Time Savings

Punch-Pro users have documented increases in productivity over other holemaking methods. One user stated that he had achieved a 75% time savings over the old method of using twist drills.

Fast Cycle Times

Punch clean and accurate holes in as little as 1.2 seconds. A single trigger actuates the punch while an exclusive auto-return mechanism returns to the punch starting position.

Ease Of Handling

Single body lightweight construction starting at 16.5 lbs make these units easy to handle and move with only a single 120V power cord and no separate hydraulics. And operator fatigue is reduced since the Punch-Pro does all the work.

Accuracy

Eliminates the need to pre-drill or pre-punch. To confirm the punch position, simply jog the punch down to the center mark for the hole location. A convenient release valve allows ease of repositioning if required.

Take Your Choice of Six Hole Punchers
